Alexander (Sasha) Kolowrat-Krakowski’s Untold Chapter as a Designer

A previously unknown but interesting fact is that Sascha Kolowrat-Krakowski built an internal combustion engine-powered vehicle for his nephews in the Colloredo-Mannsfeld family in the early 1920s. Despite essentially being a children’s toy, it had all the features of an automobile.

Miloš Hořejš, the author of several publications on the history of technology and motoring, will be bringing the recently documented topic to life.

Before the talk, you can also take a look at the exhibition.

You can look forward to more presentations in the CROSSROADS OF TECHNOLOGY series on November 30 th: The first women behind the steering wheel.
